SAN ANGELO, Texas — The San Angelo Community Band, under the direction of Dr. Constance Kelley of Angelo State University, will present a Memorial Day concert at 7 p.m. Monday at Southland Baptist Church, 4300 Meadow Creek Trail.

The concert is free and open to the public. American flags will be handed out to all attendees. Masks/face coverings are suggested, but not required.

The musical program will include:

  • "Liberty Bell March" by John Philip Sousa
  • "Washington Post" by John Philip Sousa
  • "American Patrol" by F.W. Meacham
  • "The Chimes of Liberty" by Edwin Franko Goldman
  • "Suite of Old American Dances" by Robert Russell Bennett

The concert will also feature an appearance by Fort Concho's Company F, 16th Infantry Regiment Color Guard.

"This concert will honor and remember the fallen, but is also a celebration of a return to community and everything it represents," Kelley said in a press release from Angelo State.

The SACB, which has been performing since 1989, features more than 50 local and area musicians, including ASU students and faculty as well as community members. It is a nonprofit organization sponsored by the City of San Angelo Parks and Recreation Department and is funded completely by donations.
